Hey everyone! I don't have much time because they won't let us call today because of how many missionaries have gotten reassigned. So I am just emailing you to let you know where I got reassigned.....Billings Montana! Haha of all places!!! It's freezing up there isn't it? I packed for Brazil so I have all short sleeve shirts and a light jacket. And my suit is thin! Oh well everything will work out. And guess what?! I leave Saturday morning! I just found out this morning. So i leave in less than 48 hours! Well i hear Montana is beautiful this time of year though, so I'm really excited. Plus the mission is HUGE. it covers the whole state of Montana plus part of Wyoming. So I will probably have a car. I'm just hoping it won't be too cold. I love the heat!

I know that I am going to Billings for a reason though. There are people there that the Lord has prepared for me to teach and share the gospel with, and I know that when The Lord wants me in Brazil he will put me in Brazil. I'm so excited!

Most of the elders in my district are going to Montana except for 2. Elder Cloud is going to Jacksonville, FL and Elder Lott is going to Provo, UT! He's from Colorado. Two of the sisters in my district got their VISAs already so they are going straight to Brazil on Monday. The other two sisters got reassigned to Morristown, NJ. It's crazy I can't believe I'm about to leave! Well, I love you all and I'm so excited to leave the MTC and go spread the good word! :)
Love, Elder Payne


  1. All right! And he will be so prepared if he meets a Portuguese speaker in downtown Billings!

  2. There may be a Cowboy or two that speak Portuguese. Lol
